            The helicopter crews of Air Station Kodiak had a busy couple of days, with a medevac from Ouzinki and a rescue near Port Lions.

            On Friday a man clearing trees as part of the Ouzinki airport expansion was injured when one of the trees fell on him. Twenty-five-year-old Scott Zimmerman suffered a broken leg and other injuries. An MH-60 Jayhawk arrived at the Spruce Island community about an hour after the request for a medevac was called in. Rescue swimmer Michael Gerent had to hike about a half mile from the landing zone to reach Zimmerman, who he said had already been prepped for transport. He and Zimmerman's co-workers carried him out on a litter to the waiting helicopter. Zimmerman was turned over to civilian EMTs at about 1:30, who took him to Providence Kodiak Island Medical Center where he was treated.

            On Saturday, an Anchorage hunter was reported overdue near Port Lions. Thirty-seven-year-old Johnnie O'Fallon apparently became lost while hunting alone on Friday and was unable to relocate his ATV, and so began hiking back to the village. He was reported overdue on Saturday morning and the Alaska State Troopers began an aerial search for him. Meanwhile, a Coast Guard helicopter brought a civilian search and rescue crew to Port Lions. At about 2 p.m. Saturday, Wildlife Trooper pilot Alan Jones located O'Fallon about five miles west of  the village and altered the chopper crew. Lieutenant Commander Craig Neubecker said the MH-60 was only about a mile away when Jones located O'Fallon. A rescue swimmer was lowered and found O'Fallon to be in good shape with no injuries. He was hoisted aboard and returned to Port Lions.

            A ceremony took place at noon Friday aboard the Coast Guard cutter "Alex Haley".

 All of the Crew Members of the Alex Haley will be awarded the Coast Guard's Arctic Service Medal for duty they completed this fall. In order for a unit to receive the distinction the ship must spend 21 consecutive days above the Arctic Circle. The Alex Haley spent 23 days carrying out maritime domain patrol North of Pt. Barrow to the polar ice edge in September and October. During that time they kept a record of fishing vessels, cruise ships and recreational boats in the area. The crew was especially interested in it's contact with recreational boats travelling the northwest passage including one from New York City. The Alex Haley returned to Kodiak once the sea ice started forming

The Alex Haley is a 282-foot medium endurance cutter It's named for the Coast Guard's first chief journalist, who later authored the book Roots. It can carry an HH-65 Dolphin helicopter and has a crew of 99.

All of whom will now wear the Arctic Service Medal: A cool award for being cold.
